You can't just randomly move mail around that's in maildir format. You have to
move everything including the hidden indices.

As for /home/myname/.kde.share/apps/mail, I think you
meant /home/myname/.kde/share/apps/kmail. Why do you think you can put mail
in there? That folder is for the lock file, custom icons and some notes kmail
makes for it's self.

You also don't need to specify ~/Mail/ on Suse. That is the default.
